Re: Just re-built my 17 year old computer... how to start ReactOS testing?

Hi, i finally got my super old PC working again. 1) CPU: AMD Athlon K7 1333 MHz@1000 MHz Due to an old CMOS battery the Board resetted all configuration to default and the CPU now only runs at 1000 MHz. But I remember that System having temperature issues at a high workload and I think I'll keep th...

Re: Switching the target to the NT 6.x kernel might save R&D time in the long run

But the last 10-20 percent takes the longest. So it might be just "mostly complete" for years to come. So about 80% of NT 5.2 kernel is complete. But, the 20 % missing is the hard part, like full Windows 98/2000/XP/2003 drivers support (it is assumed that ReactOS should work also in old hardware th...

¿Plan B para un repositorio fuera del control de USA?

https://www.muylinux.com/2019/05/29/geo ... o-abierto/

¿Tendrán un plan B en la fundación ReactOS para el caso de que Github (GitLab, y otros) embargue a los desarrolladores de Rusia?
¿O al estar la fundación registrada en USA, está protegida de embargos?

Re: Switching the target to the NT 6.x kernel might save R&D time in the long run

Maybe in 1 or 2 years, NT 5.2 kernel will be almost complete, in order to follow with NT6.1 kernel as fast as they can.... Any detailed technical information about how much of NT 5.2 kernel is complete? And how much of NT 5.2 is still incomplete? Nobody gives an estimation... (example: "according to...

What API call would a program make that couldn't be emulated via a forward-compatibility shim?
Drivers for modern hardware (Windows 7 + and now Windows 10) is a good example. Unless there is some kind of compatibility shim that can emulated NT 6.x driver support under NT5.2 kernel...

Re: USB initial plug and play support wine

With Wine starting to implement initial plug and play support for USB devices does that mean ReactOS might eventually get USB to work fully on the operating system? I occasionally go back and forth trying ReactOS out but every time when I try the setup installation my USB Keyboard constantly freeze...

Re: Bootloader and multi-boot question

FreeLDR can boot Linux kernels (limited to 32-bit bzimage ones) and multiboot-compliant executables directly. Does FreeLoader supports booting Windows 9x(95,98,ME) and Windows 2000,XP,2003 ? What kind of modifications needs in order to boot Windows Vista,7,8,81,10 ? One thing pending is to have Plo...

Re: FL-Studio, Reaper, Tracktion -- music production SW

Hi, Wondering if anyone here succeeded in using FL-Studio (Fruity Loop), Reaper DAW, Tracktion DAW or Ableton Live DAW... all music production software, on ReactOS ? Does ReactOS support ASIO drivers ? I suppose that ReactOS runs well as in VM using say Virtualbox or KVM hypervisors, right ? I've s...

Re: Programs that heavily rely on NT 6.x APIs list

"System requirements: Windows Vista or newer." There are some Windows Vista + programs that are runnable in ReactOS. The point is what applications require a true NT 6.x kernel (even using compatibility shim, NT 5.2 kernel cannot help to run these apps). With software specifically leaving NT5 behin...
